VARC was set up in 2000 it has offered long term (up to twelve months) residencies to artists. In these instances each resident artist develops a body of work for exhibition at the end of the residency and engages with individuals and groups from the area and further afield through workshops, open studio days, artists’ talks and other events. You can see the work of the previous VARC artists here.

All residencies are advertised, promoted and open to all artists. Follow us on social media or keep and eye on our news feed to be the first to hear about future opportunities.
